Conner, Jerusha O. – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2020
Activism is once again back on college campuses as students protest issues such as sexual assault, climate change, racial injustice, and student debt.

Felten, Peter; Lambert, Leo M. – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2020
What single factor makes for an excellent college education? As it turns out, it's pretty simple: human relationships.

Laursen, Sandra; Austin, Ann E. – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2020
Despite decades of effort by federal science funders to increase the numbers of women holding advanced degrees and faculty jobs in science and engineering, they are persistently underrepresented in academic STEM disciplines, especially in positions of seniority, leadership, and prestige. Women filled 47% of all US jobs in 2015, but held only 24%…

Veletsianos, George – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2020

Grassian, Daniel – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2020
Most new college and university administrators, especially if they come directly from the faculty ranks or from outside academia, receive little if any training.
